Going to church, reading the bible, listening to Christian music will not advance your spiritual life. These activities may give you more understanding but until you are ready to lay down your life and take up your cross this leads nowhere.

What I am talking about is the sacrifice of self to advance the cause of Jesus Christ in the world. There is a destiny that God had for each of us that only we can personally discover. We can discover it only by detaching from the world and making ourselves available for the Holy Spirit. By detaching from the world--now you have time--the commodity that most Christians are not willing to give.

Jesus said, "Self-help is not help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, to finding yourself, your true self. (Matthew 16:25)

"God has planted eternity in the human heart." (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

"Anyone who lets himself be distracted from the work I plan for him is not fit for the Kingdom of God." (Luke 9:62)

"The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me." (Acts 20:24)

"We have been sent to speak for Christ." (2 Corinthians 5:20)

"We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Ephesians 2:10)

Seeking Communion – May 26, 2024

Revelation 22:2: "In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations."


The winds of change are blowing over the Church right now. God is breathing transition over much of the Body of Christ.

If you are in a season where you feel extremely restless, it...

Daily Meditations And Affirmations - May 25, 2024

Posted 05-25-2024 at 12:27 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"Arise from the dead..." - Ephesians 5:14

The life and power comes after we "get up and get going," God does not give us overcoming life -- He gives us life as we overcome. When the inspiration of God comes and He says, "Arise from the dead," we have to get ourselves up; God will not lift us up. Our Lord said to the man with the withered hand "Stretch out your hand" (Matthew 12:13).



Luke 17:21 - "...for indeed,...

Moving Into The Empowered Life

Posted 05-25-2024 at 02:41 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

The Kingdom of God is not a matter of mere words but of an empowered life, and God is calling forth a company of overcomers. These overcomers will go into the world and testify to the goodness of God, attracting non-believers to Christ like moths to a flame.

IT IS TIME TO ARISE AND SHINE


We are the temple of the living God and the Holy Spirit dwells within us. God is calling us to rise from circumstances that have kept us, and be radiant with the glory of the Lord....
